Greetings Friends and Fiends, from Middle-earth.
Ye Olde Dragon here, reminding you that the good folks at Turner Classic Movies will be airing the complete trilogy of Sir Peter Jackson‘s THE LORD OF THE RINGS on Monday, March 2, 2015, the penultimate night of TCM’s 31 Days of Oscar.
These are the theatrical releases, and not the Extended Editions, so we’re not looking at a 14 hour marathon.
All times are Eastern Standard Time.
8:00 PM – THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING (2001) Winner of the Academy Awards for Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects, Best Makeup and Best Original Score.
11:15 PM – THE TWO TOWERS (2002) Winner of the Academy Awards for Best Visual Effects and Best Sound Editing.
2:30 AM – THE RETURN OF THE KING (2003) Clean sweep winner of all 11 Academy Awards that it was nominated for: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Score, Best Original Song (Into the West), Best Visual Effects, Best Art Direction, Best Costume Design, Best Makeup, Best Sound Mixing and Best Film Editing.
Keep in mind as well, that I will be the guest host of a #TCMParty starting at 8 PM for FELLOWSHIP and following through at 11:15 PM for TWO TOWERS.
I hope to see you there.
